Calling All Seniors: Participate in Ode to JCU

Want to get to know your fellow Blue Streaks one last time? You are invited to participate in Ode to JCU, a photo and written exhibit celebrating the Class of 2019!

An Ode is a lyrical poem that addresses a particular subject. For Ode to JCU we are looking for you to write a poem, paragraph, a stream of consciousness, sentence, or whatever makes sense to you. The subject of this Ode is up to you – could be to your freshman dorm, a specific class, a teacher or friend, a conversation, an activity you did on campus, an event, sports jersey number, whatever sticks out to you in their time at Carroll, big or small.

The primary goal of Ode to JCU is to give seniors a platform to tell their story and to get to know their classmates one final time. When the Ode to JCU exhibit is up in May, the goal is then to share with underclassman just what JCU can be for them, to thank faculty/staff for the role they played in our experience, and for families that visit at graduation to see what JCU is all about.

Submissions are due April 5th so submit today!! Need some inspiration? Join us Tuesday, March 26 at 9:15pm in O’Malley Atrium for a storytelling and writing workshop (aka time to just hang out and celebrate the last 4 years)!
